Youth Offending Service

7. Stockport Fireteam Programme

The 'Stockport Fireteam Programme' is delivered jointly by Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service and Stockport Youth Offending Service (YOS).

The programme is funded by Stockport YOS, the Safer Stockport Partnership and some schools within Stockport.

The 12 week programme is aimed at young people who are at risk of exclusion from education and those who were at risk of offending and/or antisocial behaviour.

10 young people start the programme and attend one day a week for 12 weeks. The programme is delivered by a team of three firefighters supported by a team of four YOS staff.
